Welcome toDentistry at Golden Ridge! We provide quality dentistry that shines … for the whole family and a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles
Quality, unhurried, highly personalized care is worth its weight in gold! Dentistry at Golden Ridge appreciates that comfortable surroundings, gentle treatment, and a genuinely caring team support the oral and overall health of individuals and families throughout greater northern Colorado and the Denver metro area – Evergreen, Morrison, Littleton, Idaho Springs, and places in between!
As a valued patient, you will keep returning to our office for the precision, hassle-free, and non-judgmental dentistry that you have come to expect from our dentist, Dr. Jamie Irwin Richard, and our skilled and dedicated professionals. These services include routine dental check-ups, cleanings, and screenings, to protect the teeth, gums, and mouth from conditions such as dental decay, gum disease, and oral cancers.
Our team is further supported in this mission by technology.
Dr. Richard has invested in numerous cutting-edge diagnostic tools. Accurate diagnoses allow us to develop treatment plans that work to efficiently resolve the underlying condition, which may be responsible for symptoms like sensitivity, toothaches, swelling, bleeding, and jaw and facial pain. Equipment like digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and computer-based charting also make for the most pleasant treatment experience because we can gather and communicate information about your mouth quickly, securely, safely, and painlessly.
This approach to care helps patients aged 1 to 90-plus years avoid the need for restorative treatments. We focus on protecting and maintaining oral health with consistent, routine visits that start at a young age, whenever possible. However, families also have peace of mind that, as their circumstances and health may change over time, we can still care for them properly – without having to refer them out to a specialist or practice that they do not know.
We provide an array of services designed to restore the smile’s health, function, and aesthetics. These offerings include:
- Restorative Dentistry – composite restorations made from tooth-colored, metal-free materials (fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns)
- Tooth Replacement – “conventional” bridges, dentures, and partials, as well as prosthetic teeth that are held in place by Dental Implants positioned in the jaw to function like tooth roots
- Cosmetic Dentistry – professional teeth whitening and porcelain veneers
- Oral Appliance Therapy – mouthguards, nightguards, and splint therapy (for symptoms of TMJ dysfunction)
- Oral Surgery – including dental extractions or removal of damaged teeth
- Periodontal Therapy – tailored to treat progressive gum disease at every stage, from non-surgical treatments for early-stage gingival inflammation to regenerative surgical techniques for more advanced gum disease
Now that you know a bit about Dentistry at Golden Ridge, we look forward to meeting you and your family! We are committed to genuinely caring – care that you can feel from the moment you speak with our talented team to the instant you walk in through our door and enjoy a complimentary coffee, tea, or cocoa on us. Or, maybe kicking back with fluffy pillows, a good TV show or movie, or relaxing music is more your speed. The choice is yours!
We want to be your home for top-notch dental care and treat you like an extended member of our dental family. Call (303) 951-8515 to schedule your visit. For your convenience, you may request an appointment from this website.
